Grab a burger, enjoy your favorite beverage and hear some great bands while you make the world a better place.
It’s all happening at the annual “Tunes for Trees” concert Saturday, Oct. 5, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Gibson House Museum, 512 Gibson Road in Woodland.
Red Rose Ranch Band headlines the benefit concert for the Woodland Tree Foundation. The family event also features music by the Hey Nows! and a silent auction.
Red Rose Ranch Band plays country and swing music with a vintage flavor. The band plays songs by popular artists including Hank Williams, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, Marty Robbins, Louis Jordan, The Mills Brothers and Bing Crosby.
Band members are Kathy Elzey on vocals, ukulele and percussion; Ray Elzey: vocals, guitar and pedal steel guitar; Louie Lewis: vocals and guitar, and Phil Giebel: vocals and bass guitar.
The Hey-Nows! are an acoustic-electric band that merges a power pop attitude with an Americana sensibility to create engaging music for listeners of all ages. With a combination of originals and cover tunes, they mix obscure gems by Big Star, the Old ’97s, and The Band with well-known classics by Joe Jackson, Tom Petty and the Beatles.
Formed by singer-songwriters Lee Milhous (six- and 12-string guitar) and Roger Trott (guitar and mandolin), The Hey-Nows! feature Nicolo Scozzari (lap-steel, electric guitar and dobro), Andrew Sisco (upright bass) and Andrew Curteman (drums/percussion).
The Woodland Tree Foundation is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that plants and cares for trees, and works closely with with Tree Davis and Sacramento Tree Foundation. Since its founding in 2000, Woodland Tree Foundation volunteers have planted and cared for more than 3,080 trees.
“The Tunes for Trees concert is becoming a great family tradition,” says Woodland Tree Foundation president David Wilkinson. “Join us on October 5th, hear some great music, get together with your neighbors and have a lot of fun while you support a greener community.”
Funds raised by the annual concert help support the planting and care of trees in our community. Tree plantings provide beauty, help clean the air, help in the fight against global climate change.
Tickets are $15 at the concert, and kids with parents are free.
